Faulty product

I bought it from Kmart online last week. It doesn’t work at all, it doesn’t heat at all, even the indicator light is not showing and has bad odor. It’s a faulty product. Tried to return it but still awaiting for Kmart to get back to me. Show details

Perfect for bedrooms

I just wanted a quiet heater to warm my room at night when it gets super cold. This heater was perfect for that. As long as all doors are closed it will warm up the room all night. Highly recommend. Show details ·  1

Absolute garbage

KMART should be ashamed to sell this product. The only use for this is landfill because it definitely doesn't heat. Upon returning it the clerk remarked how this is a regular occurrence and she often contemplates warning people before they buy these heaters !!! Show details

Easy to use

I've used it for about 3 months now, it takes quite a while to heat up the room but it works just fine. Wanted to opt for convection heater because I heard that it heats up faster, but cost efficiency-wise, oil heater is better. But it's worth the price considering it has 11 fins. Would recommend this product. Show details

Basic reliable heating

The heater works well and heats up fairly quickly. I was quite surprised! It is basic with just manual settings - so no timer or anything, but good for when you need a bit of heat next to the couch or to heat up a bed room before bed. Happy with it. Show details

Great heater, different heat settings, works well!

Great heater that heats room or 2 very well! has many different settings from low warmth to high and often (even on freezing cold days) doesnt have to be used past medium to get optimal heat throughtout room.
The heat is not a harsh heat, which is important as we put it in our children's room. I am very impressed with this heater.
Has an auto off function when tipped over.
Maintains consistant heat.
We have had this heater for 2 years and have NOT noticed a dramatic change in electricity bill either. Show details

Does the job

Ok for small rooms, good price for what it is, just manual settings so no coming on at a pre set time, putting it on low and draping a towel over it makes the towel nice and fluffy. Show details

Quiet Efficient Heating

Simple effective heating. I wanted a heater for my office that was quiet that would radiate a gentle heat. This one does just that. Yes, there is a click when the thermostat switches and it is not the prettiest piece of furniture but what do you get for the cheap price. I am only using it for a few months each year. It does what I bought it for. Show details

DANGER Do not buy

On connecting the heater to power for the first time it immediately blew the main fuse for our apartment. Must have been shipped without basic testing, since the new unit was not functional and shorted out straight out of the box. I guess you get what you pay for; going to look for a more expensive 11 fin heater now. Show details

Heats ok, expensive to run

I have one in each bedroom of my house and they have taken the chill out of the air quite well during winter. I did however receive a large power bill and was told by the power company these heaters cost 51c per hour to run. I guess you get what you pay for Show details

Features

  • This heater uses oil to help power the heating element, which is one of the most cost-efficient methods of heating.
  • 3 heat settings and an adjustable thermostat allows you to set the temperature you prefer in a room.
  • A built-in tilt switch helps with safety, as it turns the heater off in the event that it’s accidentally knocked over.
  • Designed with castor wheels, this Kmart oil heater can be easily moved between the different rooms of your home.

Points of Praise

  • This 11-fin oil heater from Kmart heated up a room successfully and consistently, and worked particularly effectively in smaller rooms.
  • The energy efficiency and cost effectiveness of this heater were appreciated by reviewers.
  • It was noted that this Kmart heater didn’t increase the figure at the bottom of energy bills too much.
  • Reviewers noticed that this oil heater produced a gentle heat that was effective in warming up a room, while remaining safe for children.
  • The affordable price point was definitely a favourite feature for householders, who happily stated that this 11-fin heater was worth the money.

Points to Consider

  • Some reviewers reported that this heater takes a while to warm up to the task. Of these, some stated that once the appliance got going, however, it worked a treat. Others disliked the weak or low level of heat produced, saying this wasn't enough to keep them warm.
